Marcia Espinosa

Marcia Espinosa is a Chilean Australian contemporary visual artist. In her painting and mixed media works are traces of her Latino influences where events, objects and thought are visually engaging with rich colours, lots of energy alongside a touch of humor and irony.

Her artistic process began as a teenager in Chile a country marked by a highly politicised and religious society, immigrating as an adult to Australia with her family. Her primary source of inspiration for her richly diverse work comes from the contrast of her Latin background with the highly developed and modern Australian society. Her art is a portrait of her reflections and questionings about our society structures in areas such as values, beliefs and consumerism.

She studied in Chile where she received her Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts from the Arcis University and continued her studies in Central Institute of Technology (TAFE) in Perth, Australia were she graduated with an Advance Diploma in Visual Arts and Contemporary Craft. She was the recipient of the Emerging Artist Award and the Most Industry Ready Graduate Award from TAFE in 2014 and won the award nomination to Hatched, where she was selected by Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA) to exhibit at Hatched national graduate exhibition 2015. She is currently undertaking further art studies at Curtin University.

ARTIST STATEMENT 'WIP' (Work in Progress 2018 - Marcia Espinosa

Marcia Espinosa has created paintings inspired by urban maps, highways and road signs. The random positioning of these elements provides a tension between the geometric planes and the gestural backgrounds. By connecting areas and points that mimic the language of an urban landscape, she reflects on the dynamism, codes and forms of modern cities. Marcia will also be exhibiting some of her acclaimed ceramic sculptures infused with imagery and detail evocative of her Chilean heritage and influences. 

ARTIST STATEMENT 'reincarnation' 2018 - Marcia Espinosa

My work for reincarnation is inspired by the contemplation of nature and its constant rebirth; nature reminds us that we are allowed to continue flourishing.
